A CORE Academy

Our Mission

At JQA, we focus on delivering a CORE education that provides a broad range of opportunities for students from all backgrounds to learn and achieve as well as developing a depth of character around our shared values.

We also aim to emphasise a strong association with the history and heritage of the Jewellery Quarter. 

Collaboration

We achieve our goals through working together and working successfully with others.

As a CORE academy, we are outward-facing academy and will be enriched and inspired by CORE Education Trust’s partnerships with national organisations.

Opportunity

We make the most of every opportunity that we are offered to learn and grow.

Students at our academy will benefit from opportunities to nurture their individual interests, aspirations and talents through a range of experiences, and have access to a diverse, extended curriculum offer. Every child will be given a chance to shine and will be supported when they encounter difficulties or challenges.

Respect

We look after one another and make sure everyone is safe and that we are respectful. We are proud to be a place where all are welcomed, respected, treated equally and cared for. We cherish the richness of difference and take time to understand each other.

Our academy will benefit from a direct association with high-profile national partnerships but not at the expense of an authentic connection with our local community.

Excellence

We always give 100% and make sure that everything we do is our best. We nurture each other and invest in ourselves. We’re proud of our achievements, yet always aiming higher. Exceptional educational outcomes, opportunities and experiences will be complemented by the highest quality progression routes.

Students will be aspirational and open-minded about their potential as successful global citizens, whilst remaining grounded and proud of where they are from.
